About Steven S

I enjoy cooking, travel, hiking, frisbee, art, architecture, soccer, golf, ballet, BBQ, beer with a bite, full bodied wine, an occasional stiff drink, strong coffee and most of all, time with my family and friends.

Steven S purchased this house in 2002

Why Steven S chose Kansas City

Everyone who's stayed here has found this property to be more comfortable, more interesting, and a better value compared to staying in a hotel.

What makes this house unique

I particularly appreciate the view of the Kansas City skyline from the front porch, especially at sunset. There's hardwood and tile throughout, no carpet. There are some great neighborhood (non-chain) restaurants nearby, some of which are described in a neighborhood guide I've put together for guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Steven was just a fantastic, professional, and generous host! His communication was always lightening fast and understanding. The home was a true labor of love, and we had a wonderful time relaxing and appreciating all of the details that Steven had clearly very tastefully and lovingly paid attention to. He totally accommodated our late arrival, and was also flexible on our check-out, since there were no other guests arriving that day. The home itself is just great - the kitchen is spacious and sunny, and we had a great time cooking up our simple dinners, and then enjoying the view from the porch. We had a tournament to go to at the Kansas City Convention Center, which was less than 10 minutes via the Central Ave bridge. He also has a great list of restaurants and grocery stores for his guests - which came in handy. Steven's home was a wonderful base from which to explore Kansas City - we're so thankful that we stayed in his beautiful house, and are hoping to have another reason soon to come to Kansas City!"

You should pick this property!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this property for a month with my wife and two kids after relocating to Kansas City for a new job. We stayed here a month to give us time to find a good house to move into. This place beats the socks off of staying in a hotel, trust me. The porch has a fantastic view of downtown Kansas City like the other reviewers have said. The inside is very nice and comfortable. It comes with pretty fast internet/wifi and cable television. The upstairs bedroom is large with a comfortable bed, and the upstairs bathroom is nice with two sinks and a nice shower. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed, and the downstairs was comfortable too. There's two beds downstairs in the basement that are both comfortable and another bathroom in the basement too. It stays nice and cool in the basement. There's a backyard that backs up to woods, and my son enjoyed playing around in the yard. Parking wasn't ever an issue and we just parked on the street in front of the property. Another plus of the location is that it's about a block away from Slaps BBQ which is possibly the best barbecue in Kansas City. We ate there multiple times since we were so close. Definitely check out the burnt ends, they are excellent. The owner, Steve, was great and answered all our questions and was responsive to all our needs. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a comfortable stay in Kansas City.

Yet another amazing stay in Kansas City!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancee and I had stayed in a house by this landlord on a past stay to Kansas City, and based on that favorable experience we had quite high expectations for this trip. Not only were those expectations met with this property, they were far exceeded!

The house was very user-friendly - it came complete with a well-stocked kitchen for all your dining and cooking needs, a washer and dryer (with detergent included) for mid-week laundry, and plenty of space to spread out and relax after a long day out and about in Kansas City. We immediately felt at home here, and the view from the porch was absolutely stunning of KC in the summertime, especially during the evening hours as the sun was setting.

We had an amazing time here in Kansas City, and a special thanks to the property owners for making this vacation for us just that much more special with such a wonderful and affordable place to stay while we were in town! If ever we return to Kansas City, and we will, you can be sure that this property will be on the top of our list for places to stay!

Hidden Gem in KCK

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family of 5. Nice bedroom on main floor with a small room that can be converted to a bedroom if requested. Two double beds downstairs. We liked the easy access to the freeway and the close proximity to everything. Great view of the skyline. We enjoyed the use of the well equipped kitchen and the laundry room. Very clean! Steve greeted us at the house and was very friendly. The AC was going out so he had someone on the way to fix it. It was fixed and very cool by the time we returned that evening from our day's activities. We would definitely recommend this house and stay here if we visit KC again.
